I am asking all you wonderfully creative cake-makers for some help in coming up with an idea for my husband and step-son's birthday cake. Their birthdays are only two days apart so we always celebrate together. The young guy will be 11 and the big guy, well,... more than that icon_lol.gif . They are both Harley loving, Nascar obsessed, snowmobile-crazy. Any input would be really appreciated. Thanks.

Well, the first thing that popped into my mind is a tiered cake or a moutain like cake. The base having a Nascar track going around, the middle with a Harley cruising in a moutain/woodsey scene and then a snow-topped mountain with a snowmobile. You could use toy cars, motorcycles, snowmobiles. I guess that's kind of a complicated cake but like I said it was what I envisioned when I read your post. I know their are some cakes on here that have similarities to this (mayb just different themes). I hope they both have wonderful birthdays and good luck! (and of course have fun with it!!)

I'm not very good at describing what I'm thinking so here are some pics. These themes are really nothing like what you're talking about but I hope you can see what I mean by working your theme into these style cakes:

There may be some better ones out there to go with your theme more but these are just some I had stored in favorites.

I love that road of life cake that the PP linked to.

In this case, if it was me, I'd probably pick one theme and go with that. Since NASCAR is popular in my area, maybe I'd go that route. That way you could save the other two themes for the years to come. JMO

I agree with jammjenks about sticking to one theme. You could incorporate several things related to that theme into the cake. For example, if you did the Nascar theme, you could do a checkered flag, a pit stop area, etc.
